Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Title: 无糖的咖啡
Artist: 杨乐
Link: https://youtu.be/T8awA80x-XY
Translation: https://www.notion.so/ef6127a3248d475b966584daacb7f288

Chinese lyrics

就这样一天天
就这样抽着烟
我燃烧着时间
一年一年

不再去想昨天
今天很快是从前
也不再等明天
过着今天

读每天的体会
唱每天的喜与悲
喝一杯无糖的咖啡
品出许多的滋味

也许有眼泪
也许要后悔
也许这样才完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

就这样一天天
就这样发着呆
我享受着时间
一年一年

来不及等昨天
今天很快是从前
也来不及等明天
过了今天

这一刻的体会
这一刻的喜与悲
这一杯无糖的咖啡
品出更多的滋味

因为有眼泪
因为要后悔
因为这样叫完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

Title: 静下来

Translation: https://www.notion.so/5ee0e416256c4ca3a8110fd03004af80

Chinese lyrics

我想应该静下来想一些话
我想应该静下来走一段路
我想应该静下来看一本书
我只想静下来反省自己

我想应该静下来睡一个觉
我想应该静下来想一个人
我想静下来忘掉那些事情
我只想静下来反省自己

当一切都开始静下来的时候
静的可以让我听到平和安静的心跳
静的象云
静的象空气
静静的我开始渐渐的适应

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

Title: 虫的触角。
Artist: 诺尔曼

Translation: https://www.notion.so/b956edac59c14645b6abe10f7de2ae3e

Chinese lyrics

云儿 就像吟游诗人
唱着风的歌,吐着雨的口水
鸟儿 忘记了怎么飞
反正在笼中不累,可以安睡

关上手机,开启虫的触角
让我们感知这世界吧

现在 关上你的朋友圈
闭上你的眼睛 还有嘴
耳朵 可以探测方向
让我们逐渐 去寻觅远方

驯鹿是吃那苔藓的啊
它从森林中出不来呀

信息多的像空中的碳(氧化合物)
我是否运行着太多感官?
邀请“静静”来个约会吧
用虫的触角与她交谈

书上的墨比屏幕更深
现场的音乐比耳机更真
相见后时间给我可以吗?
回家后再低头联络吧

用虫的触角去遥望吧
用虫的触角去感知这世界,好吗? 呵呵

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
Next week is the test, textbook hasn’t even been touched
Will see advisor tomorrow to submit thesis, at worst you won’t sleep tonight
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can definitely diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Pile up for a month, no more clean clothes to wear
Room isn’t inhabitable by humans, no place to put your feet
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

End of the month, rent hasn’t been paid, should be fined for (late) water and electricity (bill)
Don’t want to make food, don’t want to bathe, can’t stop (watching) TV shows
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

Chinese lyrics

闹钟响了好几遍了你怎么不起床呢
你说再睡个五分钟可已经一钟头了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一礼拜的工作可是你一拖再拖
领导急了老板怒了可你还在玩微博
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
下礼拜就要考试了课本还从没碰过
明天见导师交论文大不了今晚不睡了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以确切诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一个月了没有干净衣服能穿了
房间不是人类住的双脚都没地方搁
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

月底了房租还没交水电费该罚款了
不想做饭不想洗澡电视剧停不下了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
你又胖了说要去健身房可整天躺着
这顿不算下顿再说不吃饱怎么减肥呢
根据您的临床表现
我们可以完全诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

我还有救吗
您是晚期拖延症患者
你问我我问谁呢
我们都是晚期拖延症患者

Wednesday, second class of the day
A beautiful silhouette enters
She’s not Teacher Liu
Teacher Liu is sick

Her family name is Wang, she tells us
She’s our substitute teacher for the day
Her voice is very pleasant
She’s almost the same age as me

Miss Wang, I love you
I answer all of your questions
I haven’t yet experienced love
I’m not from around here

Miss Wang, I love you
These past days you’ve been in my dreams
Coming and going
Close my eyes, see you everywhere

Next Wednesday, second class of the day
Will Teacher Liu take a rest?
I know it’s not possible
Just want to see you

You're just like my sister
I often write to her
Want to think of you as her
Not logical at all

Miss Wang, I love you
When will you come to my class again
To answer your 100 questions
I’ll study hard
Miss Wang, I love you
Are you also not from around here?
People who left home don’t have it easy, have to rely on themselves

Chinese lyrics

星期三的第二堂课
走进一个美丽的身影
她不是刘老师
刘老师病了

她姓王,她对我们说
今天她给我们代课
她说话很好听
年龄和我差不多

王老师,我爱你
回答你提的所有问题
我还没接触过爱情
我的家在外地

王老师,我爱你
这些天你在我的梦里
走来走去
闭上双眼,到处是你

下星期三的第二堂课
刘老师会不会休息
我知道不可能
只是想见你

你就像我姐姐一样
我经常写信给她
想把你看成她
不合逻辑

王老师,我爱你
你何时再来我的班里
为了你的一百个问题
我要好好学习
王老师,我爱你
你的家是否也在外地
离家的人 活着不易,全靠自己

Every day at 7 I wake up, semi-consciously I exit the dorm
No time to eat breakfast, because I have to go attend those stupid classes
Listen to these college professors, expressionlessly reading from the textbook
I lower my head and I’m also looking at my phone, without realizing it I enter dreamland

Sun is in the sky shining on the school, I’m carrying a bookbag filled with explosives
A flower finds out and smiles at me, a small bird says I’m badass
Fellow students aren’t worthless, tell me who’s worthless
You make me sit in the classroom, if I don’t show up you deduct points, this is how China’s colleges are

Basically, if you don’t attend class you fail it, if you fail it you have to retake it
If you retake it you gotta fucking pay up, a single class costs more than 200
You ask him what’s the point, what I’m learning is useless
He said you should just resign yourself, this is how China’s colleges are

Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Your ideological stance is utterly wrongheaded
Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Just go home already, just stop coming to study

Chinese lyrics

每天早上我七点起床,迷迷糊糊我就出了宿舍
没有时间去吃顿早饭 因为我还得去上那些傻逼的课
听这些大学的老师 面无表情得读着课本
我低着头,我还玩着手机,不知不觉就做了个梦

太阳当空照学校,我背着书包装炸药
花儿知道了,他对我笑,小鸟也说我牛逼了
同学少年都不贱,你说到底是谁贱
让我坐到教室,不来你就扣分,这就是中国的大学

话说这不上课你就得挂科,挂了科你就要重修
重修还他妈得交钱,一门课就是二百多
你问他这是为什么,我学的都没用处
他说你就认命吧,这就是中国的大学

小花同学,小花同学
你的思想态度及其的不端正
小花同学,小花同学
你就回家吧,你就别来上学

When I was young
My family had 6 members
Brothers and sisters
I was the youngest

Papa was handsome
Mama was young and pretty
Energetic workers
Kind characters

After the Cultural Revolution
There were 5 left
Papa was falsely charged
Left us early

Mama was helpless
Remarried to another place
Brothers and sisters
Went to the mountains to work in the countryside

From that time on
My family was basically split apart
Brothers and sisters
East west south north

Every holiday
Just well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar

Many years later
Look back once more
Brothers and sisters
Don’t need to be consoled

We all remember
Papa wants us to be sincere
And also kind
Never change

We remember
Mama wants us to be resolute
And also happy
Even today

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Resolute, happy
Kind, sincere

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Sincere, kind
Live happily

Chinese lyrics

小的时候
一家六口
哥哥姐姐
我排在最后

爸爸英俊
妈妈年轻又漂亮
工作积极
为人善良

文革以后
剩下五口
爸爸含冤
走在前头

妈妈无奈
结婚嫁到了外地
哥哥姐姐
上山下乡

从那以后
我的家就算散了
兄弟姐妹
东西南北

每逢过节
只有遥远的祝福
遥远祝福
遥远祝福

多年以后
再度回首
兄弟姐妹
不用安慰

我们都记得
爸爸要我们真诚
还要善良
永远都不能变

我们记得
妈妈要我们坚强
还要快乐
哪怕在今天

我们唱着
爸爸妈妈
最爱唱的歌
坚强,快乐
善良,真诚

我们唱着
爸爸妈妈
最爱唱的歌
真诚,善良
快乐 生活

I know very little about your life
As a child you carried a canvas bookbag to school
Your father told you to work hard
More than half of your life, plain tea, cloth shoes, food coupons

Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
How high is it?

I know very little about your life
From the first time I saw you, you were very very old
How come time runs faster than the first-place runner?
In a flash your teeth all start to fall out

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be for you to tell me the stories within your wrinkles
I’ll come with you to grow flowers, fish, stroll, feed birds
How great it would be for you to hold my child

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be to return to the stories within your wrinkles
Go with you back to your hometown, even if it’s far away
Let me know about your life, OK?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?

你的一生我知道的很少
小时候背着帆布书包去学校
你的爸爸 告诉你要勤劳
生活大半辈子,粗茶布鞋粮票

城门,城门,几丈高
城门,城门,几丈高
城门,城门,几丈高
几丈高

你的一生我知道的很少
从第一次见你,你就好老好老
怎么时光比第一名还能跑
一晃神你的牙都开始掉

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
给我讲讲你皱纹里的故事多好
陪你养花钓鱼 散步喂鸟
让你抱抱我的小孩该多好

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
让我回到你皱纹的故事多好
陪你回趟家乡,哪怕迢迢
让我知道你的一生,好不好
城门,城门,几丈高

You looked at me for a long time
In your eyes, I can see
You want me to bring you along
I looked at you for a long time
Afraid that on the way there, you’ll
Plead

Every time I go out
You wait for me a long time
As soon as the car pulls up downstairs
You watch for me a long time
All my worries
Are carried away by your tail
Waved away in the wind

I looked at it a long time
Your favorite window
Sunlight shines on your spot
At this time you‘re at the door
Always hoping I’ll take you out for
A walk

I’m still not used to
You not being behind the door
Give my first greeting upon coming home
I still like it
When you nudge me with your head

You just don’t know how to say it
You understand everything about me
You just don’t know how to say it
Inside your heart, there’s only me
You just don’t know how to say it
Inside your heart, there’s only me

你看了我好久
眼神中透露着
要我带你走
我看了你好久
怕你会在那条路上
哀求

每次一出门
你等我好久
车刚到楼下
你守我好久
所有的忧愁
被尾巴带走
摇散在风中

我看了那好久
你最爱的窗口
阳光照着你的窝
每当这时候你在门口
总希望我带你出门
遛遛

我还不习惯
你不在门后
给我回家第一个问候
我还是喜欢
你用头碰碰我

你只是不会说
我的所有你都懂
你只是不会说
你的心里只有我
你只是不会说
你的心里只有我

Right at 9, the last alarm sounds
Lazily and dazedly extend my back, half awake, half asleep
She’s in a rush, afraid of being late
I accidentally pee in her shoe

I mistakenly think this habit is a sort of mutual understanding
But she gives me a bitter melon face, very angry
Oh a dog’s mission
I still don’t understand it’s meaning

Want to sleep, want to eat my fill
But still have to continue pondering
Why my master
Is not accepting my ingratiation anymore

Is there some kind of medicine
Swallow it whole
And I can share her struggles
I really really want to see her smile
And in passing tell her
Today I didn’t cause a scene

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Want to open my mouth but I can’t say anything
Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
No time to do cheap tricks for you

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Go out into the world and look around
Don't dodge or hide
If you’re not satisfied, dress like a person and live like a dog

Like to sniff morning flower scent
Like to observe every day’s sunset
This is what I’m like
Don’t unrealistically expect any more human characteristics

But day after day passes
She’s step by step
Discovering her dream
And time passes unwaveringly second by second
The clock hand ticks heavily on my heart

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Want to open my mouth but I can’t say anything
Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du
Don't want to do cheap tricks for you

Jiu ba li du lu jiu ba li du lu
Go out into the world and look around
Don't dodge or hide
If you’re not satisfied, dress like a person and live like a dog

Chinese lyrics

九点整最后闹钟响起
伸个懒腰迷迷糊糊,半梦半醒
她慌慌张张,怕来不及
我一不小心尿进她的鞋里

我以为这习惯是种默契
她却给我一张苦瓜脸,好生气
喔一条狗的使命
我大概还不懂得它的意义

想睡觉,想吃饱
但又不得不继续思考
主人因为什么
不再接受我的讨好

有没有一种药
一口吞下
可以分担她的苦恼
我很想很想看她笑
顺带告诉她
今天我没有哭闹

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
想开口却又讲不来话
噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
没空跟你玩什么烂把戏呀

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
去外面的世界看一看
你别躲也别藏
不甘心穿得人模活得狗样

喜欢闻早晨的花香
喜欢看每日的夕阳
我就是这样
不奢求更多人类的模样

但一天一天过去了
她也一步一步
发觉自己的梦呀
而时间一秒一秒不停留
指针在心底走得好沉重

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
想开口却又讲不来话
噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟
跟你玩什么烂把戏呀

噈叭哩嘟噜噈叭哩嘟噜
去外面的世界看一看
你别躲也别藏
不甘心穿得人模活得狗样

Don't need to turn the coil so tightly, treat passersby as scenery
Zoning out is the lesson of the day, getting lost is the goal of the moment
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

No need to fight on the weekend, please don’t persist in going against the flow
Heart beats in time with the rhythm in my headphones, getting lost is the goal of the moment yeah
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

I'm gon have my way
Today was a good day

发条不用拴紧,把路人当做一种风景
放空是今天的课题,迷路是现在的目的
It's been a good day,就让我耍废
其他事 明天起床面对
I'm gon have my way,我说的就对,心越远 我就 能够体会

小歇一下,让身体放假
找个 咖啡店坐一下
小歇一下,坏天气没差
装个傻,别让心情绑架

周末不需要战斗,反拍生活请不要执着
心跳跟着耳机节奏,迷路是现在的目的 yeah
It's been a good day,就让我耍废
其他事 明天起床面对
I'm gon have my way,我说的就对,心越远 我就 能够体会

小歇一下,让身体放假
找个 咖啡店坐一下
小歇一下,坏天气没差
装个傻,别让心情绑架

It's been a good day,就让我耍废
其他事 明天起床面对
I'm gon have my way,我说的就对,心越远 我就 能够体会
小歇一下,让身体放假
找个 咖啡店坐一下
小歇一下,坏天气没差
装个傻,别让心情绑架

I'm gon have my way
Today was a good day

Before afternoon
Is sleepy time
I’m by the innermost bookshelf
Dozing off, staring at the sky

Before afternoon
Is a time of one’s own
I’m in the corner smoking
Blow out mist, 2 to 3 rings

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?

Before afternoon
Is a time of freedom
I’m at a lake with no people
Singing how fresh is the sunlight

Before afternoon
Is a time for dreaming
Clouds can’t hide the autumn warmth
Who’s smiling sweetly in their dream?

Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly, softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?
Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Before afternoon
Is the mellowest time
Suddenly everything
Fades into pre-afternoon

Chinese lyrics

午后以前
属于困倦的时间
我在书架的最里面
打着瞌睡望着天

午后以前
属于自己的时间
我在角落里抽着烟
吹起云雾两三圈

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿

午后以前
属于自由的时间
我在没有人的湖边
唱着日光好新鲜

午后以前
属于做梦的时间
云也藏不住秋意暖
谁在梦里笑得甜

你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻,好轻,好轻,好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿
你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻 好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

午后 以前
是最慵懒的时间
突然间 一切都
消散在下午以前

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Chinese lyrics

突然很想 不去上班
发一发呆 偷一点懒
但是又要 问我自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我要怎么 画出未来

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我想不明白

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 我真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看

Hey mama
This world is constantly changing
There’s no way that my life would be exactly the same as yours

Hey mama
Your son has already grown up
Everyone has to walk their own path

Grandpa always says you didn’t have to bear the hardships of war
You always say we didn’t have to experience the Cultural Revolution
We’ll also say that the each generation is damn inferior to the previous one
But when we’re all old, everything under heaven belongs to those born in the 90s

Hey mama
Society always has many different points of view
What if I was gay?
Is it possible you’d look down on me?

In the past Bruno said
The earth revolves around the sun
But those so-called worldly people
Burned him alive

I have no chance of becoming awesome heroes like them
But I must tenaciously walk the path I’ve chosen
Even though I have nothing at all
However like Pavel (protagonist of Soviet novel How the Steel Was Tempered) I’m still totally satisfied (with life)

Mamama, dear mama, North Korean and South Korea, who is right?
Mamama, dear mama, look at North Korean and South Korea, who is wrong?
Mamama, dear mama, why can’t they peacefully get along?

嘿妈妈
这个世界在不停变化
我的生活不可能与你一模一样啊

嘿妈妈
儿子已经长大
每个人的道路总要自己走啊

爷爷总说你们没吃过打仗的苦
你们总说我们没经过文化大革命吧
我们也会说真他妈一代不如一代啊
可是等我们全都老了,天下还是90后的

嘿妈妈
世间总有很多不同的看法
如果我是同性恋呢?
难道你会歧视我吗?

曾经布努诺说
地球围着太阳转的
可是那些所谓有经验的人们
却将他活活烧死啦

我无法成为他们那么牛B的英雄
可是自己选择的道路总要顽强得走
虽然现在我一无所有
可是我却感觉像保尔一样充实满足

妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说朝鲜和韩国到底谁是对的?
妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说朝鲜和韩国到底谁是错的?
妈妈妈,亲爱的妈妈,你说他们为什么就不能和平相处呢?

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

You’re very loud, you have many anxieties
For example when I’m far away, have I eaten well?
Who’s cleaning the room, will the kid fall down??
I’m swiping my phone saying, I got it, I got it
Laughing while you look at me, wondering why I’m so childish
Can’t do anything, how can I take good care of your grandson?
Every day the conversations are about the same
Gabby, you’re too gabby, you repeat everything you say

Once you become a mother, you become strong, no challenge is too tough
Just like when you left our hometown to earn money for me
Didn’t earn much, bought everything for me
You’re very skinny and weak, did your utmost to protect me

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling

Yesterday you pointed out to me the age spots on your face
You said back in the day you were beautiful, suitors piled up like a mountain
You always love to tell old stories, and always carry a grudge against someone who mistreated me, on this point you’re very stubborn
You said my daughter will finally understand the pain of being a mother, when I went into labor you were far away crying uncontrollably
Married too far away, hard to reunite, forget it, don’t talk it, it’s fate
Paid too much for clothes, food is almost cold
Won money at mahjong, don’t bother me when I lose money
Not sleeping well, sleeping too little, holding your grandson singing the folk songs of my youth

Be good darling, sleep darling
Sleepiness slowly takes hold, bad guys stay away
My darling loves to sleep

Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling
Oh darling, sleep darling

Never send me to the airport, just ask that when I land I report all is well
The night that I left home, you couldn’t sleep until dawn
They say that when children go far way, mother won't stop worrying until the family is reunited
Hold the child’s hand, teach him how to walk the right path in the future
Sometimes there’s shouting and chaos, sometimes there’s crying and laughter
You always say everything’s for my good, you always say in this world only mama is good
Say mama, say mama, quickly quickly learn to say mama
The responsibility for this title is so heavy, only when I become you can I really experience it

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

When I become you, the role becomes mine
Sing once more the nursery rhymes of yesteryear
Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

Be good darling, sleep darling
Be good darling, sleep darling

Chinese lyrics

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

你很吵,你有很多烦恼
比如我在远方 有没有吃饱
房间谁打扫,孩子会不会跌倒
我滑着手机说知道啦知道
看着我笑,说我怎么还像孩子这么小
什么都不会,怎么能把你的孙子照顾好
每一天的对话都差不多
啰嗦,嫌你啰嗦,什么事都重复说

为母则强,没有什么困难
就像当年你为我奔走他乡
赚的不多,什么都买给我
你很瘦弱,拼了命得保护我

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命

昨天你指给我 看脸上的老人斑
说当年你很漂亮,追求的人堆成山
你总爱讲当年的故事,还念着谁对我不好,这点你很固执
你说女儿终会知道当妈的苦,当我临盆你在远方不停得哭
嫁太远,难团圆,算啦,不说啦,都是缘
衣服买贵了,饭菜快凉了
麻将赢钱了,输钱都别惹
睡眠不好,睡得太少,晚上抱着孙子唱着我童年的歌谣

乖乖命命,睡觉命
睡意渐渐就来了,贼仔贼公都别来
我阿命爱去睡觉眠

哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命
哦哦命命,睡觉命

从来不送我去机场,只要降落报个平安
我离家的那个夜晚,你又失眠到天亮
都说儿行千里母担忧,欢聚一堂才能解千愁
拉着孩子的小手,教他未来的道路到底该怎么走
有时候有吵有闹,有时候有哭有笑
你总说一切都是为我好,你总说世上只有妈妈好
叫妈妈,叫妈妈,快点快点学叫妈妈
这个称呼责任多重大,当我成了你才能真的体会她

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

当我成了你,角色变自己
当年的童谣再一次又唱起
乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

乖乖命命,睡觉命
乖乖命命,睡觉命

Open the box, leisurely, vestiges of the past
Stacks of ticket stubs, beautifully aged
From a show that played on some day, some month, some year
A movie from the last meeting before farewell
The longing for warmth, it’s all printed here

This is my hoarding complex
Since I can’t live in the moment, might as well collect memories
It feels ridiculous, I want to keep everything, afraid of losing it all at once
Those printed words are blurred with age
Just like we will become blurred with age
It's alright, this is the best evidence of our existence

Find that living is not at all easy, it’s very hard to pause the gears
This kind of compulsive hoarding can be fun to play with, it’s just for killing time
Find that living is a big problem, happiness is even harder
This kind of compulsive hoarding lets you reflect on yourself, where you stand

So I sorted out all the wrinkled things
Those things that look like junk, but have more meaning because of my point of view
Thank you for your company, you picked up my worn-out heart
This kind of compulsive hoarding, how long can I keep it up?
Those messy past incidents, still need to box them up

Chinese lyrics

打开盒子,慢条斯理,走过的痕迹
票根一张一张,旧得很美丽
是某天某月某年还有的那出戏
是最后一次道别相约的电影
渴望温度的动机 都印在这里

这是我的搜集癖
既然无法活在当下,那就这样珍藏回忆
想来也好笑,什么都要留着,怕一下子就失去
那些印着的字迹模糊不清
就像是我们 也会模糊不清
也好,这是存在的最好证明

发现活着真不容易,齿轮很难暂停
这样的搜集癖 还能玩玩游戏,无聊而已
发现活着是大问题,快乐更不容易
这样的搜集癖 还能看看自己 活在哪里

于是我整理好了 所有皱褶的东西
那些被视为破烂 却因为眼光更具有意义
谢谢你曾经的同行,拾起我破烂的心
这样的搜集癖 还能持续多久下去
那些凌乱的过去 还是要找个盒子装进去

Old wine glass, old toy, old cologne
Old flame, old emotional wounds, old happiness
Old me, old scents, old heart beats
Old feelings that are lost

Old wine glass, that red wine’s flavor has dispersed
Old flame and her new flame are sleeping together
Old me can perceive their new joy
Old feelings, let them age

Old hunting cap, still haven’t thrown it away
Sitting in my wardrobe like a trap
Every second and every minute reminding me to ask how you’re doing
Old razor blade, still haven’t thrown it away
Fixed into place in the bathroom like a talisman
Every several minutes and several seconds, enter a number only to then delete it, so pointless

Old hunting cap, I threw it out
Its place in my wardrobe has been taken up by my cat
Every instant guarding my heart, don’t care how you’re doing now
Old razor blade, I threw it out
Looking in the bathroom mirror, smile at myself
Every several minutes and several seconds, phone rings and then disconnects, doesn't bother me at all

旧杯,那红酒散了味
旧爱 和新欢在同睡
旧人 听得见新人笑
旧情,就快让它发酵

旧了的鸭舌帽,还没有丢掉
在衣柜里寄居着像一个圈套
每分每秒 提醒我的心想 问问你现在好不好
旧了的剃须刀 还没有丢掉
在洗手间定格 就像一个符号
几分几秒,电话号码输入 又删掉多没必要

旧了的鸭舌帽,我把它丢掉
在衣柜里寄居的变成我的猫
分分秒秒 守住我的心脏,不管你现在好不好
旧了的剃须刀,我把它丢掉
在洗手间镜子 对着自己微笑
几分几秒,电话铃声响起 又挂掉都不重要

You live on the fourth floor, I live on the third
Every day I hear you renovating
Monday to the weekend, no rest at all
Neighbors all moved away

I heard after he left
You never wanted to venture outside again
Electric drill head, drill painfully through your heart
Mistakenly believe that he’ll return after the renovation

Unfortunately
His love was worn down by years of neglect
His heart was long ago stolen away by time
After whitewashing
It’s not enough to hide the faded red

However
Your hate can’t be extinguished
Building up a tower to lay siege to love
The master of self-deception
Lives in your memories and refuses to leave
Unable to leave

He’s older than her by 3 years
She loudly calls him Old Ghost
They play guitars around the bonfire
Singing that time flows like water

He was once a big drinker
She was once young and lovely
They left home in their twenties
To be heartbroken in a faraway place

They sing that spring wind is like the sea
And sing their dreams for the future
They sing about cherishing each other
And sing about their desire to have children

They sing love songs until morning’s light
And sing about challenging yourself while you’re young
They sing that struggle is short-lived
And sing that when they’re rich and upstanding they’ll return home

He floats through factory jobs
She sells smiles in small stores
Their lives are like rice straws, no one else to rely on
But they embrace every day

He was once destitute and down on his luck
She was once an unreasonable brat
Every day they split up, stubbornly bicker
Neither asks for forgiveness

They sing that life is so fickle
And sing about the disappointment towards reality
They sing about pain and tears
And sing that maybe it’s better to end the show

They about spring grass becoming yellow in autumn
And sing about that autumn yellow turning into summer coolness
They sing about life being so boring
And sing about getting a new house next year

Life goes on
There was no miracle
They didn’t get rich
Always ordinary, then they grew old

He doesn’t sigh as much
She’s not anxious anymore
They count wrinkles and genuine happiness
Finally start to look back

They sing about how crazy those years were
And sing about that young guy, that dumb gal
They sing that life is so hard
And sing that this struggle was so glorious

They sing about how weddings are so stupid
And sing about those long-standing grudges
They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

他比她大三岁
她喊他叫老鬼
他们抱着吉他围着火堆
唱往事如水

他曾千杯不醉
她曾青春貌美
他们二十几岁离开家
去天涯心碎

他们唱春风如海洋
又唱对未来的幻想
他们唱彼此要珍惜
又唱生孩子的愿望

他们唱情歌到天亮
又唱趁年轻要敢闯
他们唱艰苦很短暂
又唱富贵就还乡

他在工厂飘摇
她在小店卖笑
他们生如稻草,无依无靠
却每天拥抱

他曾穷困潦倒
她曾无理取闹
他们每天分手,倔强争吵
都不肯求饶

他们唱人生太无常
又唱对现实的绝望
他们唱痛苦泪涟涟
又唱还不如就散场

他们唱春草变秋黄
又唱那秋黄换夏凉
他们唱日子太无聊
又唱明年换新房

生活还在继续
从来没有奇迹
他们没有发财
依然平凡就老去

他也少了叹息
她也不再着急
他们数着皱纹,心生欢喜
终于开始回忆

他们唱当年多疯狂
又唱那少年傻姑娘
他们唱一生太辛苦
又唱这辛苦多风光

他们唱婚礼多窝囊
又唱那陈年老旧账
他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟

他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟

Let me be a stupid person
Avoid the conflict between knowledge and privilege
Let me be a lowlife
Trade my toil with capitalists to get the youth I deserve

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Students buying breakfast cursing next to me
Boring news sliding under fingertips
I’m thinking of my middle class mom and dad

"After you grow up, you must be an educated person
Marry a good husband, live a happy life"
Everyone wants to be a person of means
But who will paint things, who will wipe floors
Who will be the wretched poor beneath our feet?

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Homeless people on the side of the road speaking to themselves
A filthy dog is sizing me up
I’m thinking of my mom and dad who have struggled their entire lives

「你长大以后 要做个读书人
嫁个好老公,过幸福的一生」
大家都想要 做个有钱人
那谁来刷油漆,谁来擦地板
谁来当他们脚底下的穷困

刚下班的凌晨骑车回家
没有家的人在路边对自己说话
一只脏兮兮的狗在打量我
我想起我那 辛苦了一生的爸爸妈妈

Did your mom force you to marry?
Did your mom force you to marry?
If your mom didn’t force you
Why are you forcing yourself, forcing yourself?

Miss Ding is 28 this year
Bright and joyful, lovely as a flower
The house she likes isn’t big
Just wants a small cozy home

Spring festival comes, company vacation
Her mom makes prawns braised in oil
But she’s a little afraid
Afraid her mom will ask, do you have a boyfriend?

Mr Wang is 28 this year
Started a software business with partners
He works day and night, can’t ever go home
No choice but to work overtime banging out code

Spring festival comes, company vacation
His mom makes bullfrog boiled in Szechwan chili oil
But he’s a little afraid
Afraid his mom will ask, do you have a girlfriend?

Chinese lyrics

你妈逼你结婚了吗?
你妈逼你结婚了吗?
如果你妈没有逼
何必自己逼自己,逼自己

丁小姐今年28
神清气爽,貌美如花
喜欢的房子并不大
只想要一个小小的家

春节来了,单位放假
她妈做的油焖大虾
可是她的心里有点害怕
怕她妈问她,男朋友呢?

王先生今年28
联合创业,软件开发
他没日没夜,不能回家
只能在公司加班敲代码

春节来了,单位放假
他妈做的水煮牛蛙
可是他的心里有点害怕
怕他妈问他,女朋友呢?

Oh~oh~
This is a sad song
Oh~this is a sad song

Miss Wang turned 31
When her friends see her
They all ask a question:
When do you plan to get married?

But the problem of marriage
Isn’t something she can decide on by herself
She asks her papa, she asks her mama
They both said, you better hurry

Look, look, look at other people, there there there there
Look, look, look look look there there there there

Over-30 artsy girl
Should marry what kind of person?
Shouldn’t she find someone who does art?
This way, they would be fairly compatible?

But artsy boys who do art
Some of them are only into their art
Also, a very small minority of boys who do art
Do art so they can do girls

Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
What’s the point of marrying him?
Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
Damn damn damn damn it

Friends introduce quite a few
Some have cars, some have houses, some have kids
They said you should find one who has money
Let him support your creative efforts

But no rich guys like her
They only want to marry those who can cook
Girls who can’t cook
Can only become the other woman
Artsy girls who can’t cook
Can only be used by them

Damn damn damn damn it
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

This song is a truthful account
If it’s fictional that’s just coincidence
Please don’t take it personally
And then form an online mob to block me

Look, look, look, she can only make stir fried egg and tomato
Look, look, and eat it with instant noodles
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

Title: 大龄文艺女青年之歌

Chinese lyrics

Oh~oh~
这是一首悲伤的歌
Oh~这是一首悲伤的歌

王小姐三十一岁了
朋友们见到了她
都要问一个问题:
你什么时候打算嫁呢?

可是嫁人这一个问题
又不是她一个人 可以决定的
她问她爸爸,她问她妈妈
他们都说,你赶紧的

你看,你看,你看人家,那那那那
你看,你看,你看看看那那那那

大龄文艺女青年
该嫁一个什么样的人呢?
是不是也该找个搞艺术的
这样就比较合适呢?

可是搞艺术的男青年
有一部分只爱他的艺术
还有,极少部分搞艺术的男青年
搞艺术是为了搞姑娘

搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
你嫁给他干什么呢?
搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
奶奶奶奶奶奶的

朋友们介绍了好几个
有车子,房子,和孩子的
他们说你该找个有钱的
让他赞助你搞创作

可是大款都不喜欢她
他们只想娶会做饭的
不会做饭的女青年
只能去当第三者
不会做饭的文艺女青年
只能被他们潜规则

奶奶奶奶奶奶的
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

这一首歌纯属雷同
如有虚构实属巧合
请不要自觉对号入座
然后发动群众封杀我

你看,你看,你看她只会做西红柿炒鸡蛋
你看,你看,还要就着方便面
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

On the way home from work
Became wet and rainy
Slowly walk
Treat it as a stroll in the rain
Lovers holding hands
Avoiding the rain in the station
I don’t have the heart to disturb them
Lower my head and walk over
In their vicinity, time came to a stop
Rainy day became a subtle poem
Looking on as they hail a taxi
My eyes follow the wetness

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

Quietly sit
Idly thinking
Take out my phone and see reflected
The image of myself
Feel a little hapless
Maybe because
The wind has been blowing the whole time
Waited for a rather long time
Feel a little embarrassed
Passerby glances at me
Continues walking forward
Rain suddenly fell hard, then suddenly fell softly
I’m a little anxious but also helpless

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Night becomes ever colder, I rub my hands
Want to get some warmth, but it’s no use
I’m even getting a bit pissed off
While sighing, I lift my head
Faintly see hope coming closer
Couldn’t help but dash into the rain
A small pleasant surprise after disappointment
Leave misfortune in the mud
Lean against the window zoning out
Blurred vision, how relaxing
Stop for a while, pass a station
Some time passes, go towards the next station
Warm last train
Other than the driver, there’s only me in the car
Lazily hum a song
It feels like I’m the only one left in this world

Title: 末班车

Translation: https://www.notion.so/437bd14c8b254fa2b2366bfff2bff4a9

Chinese lyrics

下班的路
变得湿漉
慢慢走
当是雨中散步
牵手的情侣
在站台躲雨
不忍心打搅
低头走过去
时间 在他们周围静止
雨天 变成微妙的小诗
看着 他们拦下的士
我的眼睛跟着潮湿

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

安静坐着
随便想着
掏出手机我看到反射
出的那个我
有些许狼狈
可能是因为
风一直在吹
等了有点久
感觉有点糗
路人看了看我
继续往前走
雨 忽急又忽缓
我有点着急又无奈

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

夜越来越冷,我搓着手
想得到温暖但没有用
甚至开始有点恼火
叹息的时候我抬起头
隐约看希望靠近
忍不住冲进雨里
失望过后的小惊喜
把落魄丢在泥泞
靠着车窗在发呆
视线模糊好舒缓
停了一会,过一站
过了一段,往下一站
温暖 的末班车
除了司机车厢只剩我
慵懒 的哼起歌
这个世界好像只剩我

In the night sky
So many stars
Bright one is you
Dim one is me

In the wilderness
Flowers in the wind
Red one is you
Green one is me

Between heaven and earth
So many landscapes
Blue mountain is you
Small river is me

In life
So much that is ephemeral
Cloud is like you
Cool breeze is like me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

 

Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Slide down the seat, lean back
I lazily stretch my legs
The uncle across from me
While snoring, widely opens his mouth

Nearby auntie, rocking to and fro
She sleeps soundly in her unsteadiness
The girl next to me, gossiping with a friend about someone's
Scandals

I'm also tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Sorrowful things, difficult things
Here, I don't have the strength to think of them

The city night, above my head
Silently pass through its heart
Even if it's riddled with problems
Still it smiles elegantly and beautifully

I'm already tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Serious things, troublesome things
Here, I can temporarily set them aside

Wait until the stop, get out of the train
The remainder of the trip is still pretty long
Don’t think about it, whatever
Let the breeze blow on my face

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Title: 十点半的地铁

Chinese lyrics

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累

矮下了身子,向后仰
我懒散地伸长了腿
对面的大叔
在鼾声之中张大了嘴

旁边的阿姨,左摇右晃
她睡得找不到北
身边的妹妹 和朋友谈谁
是是非非

我也疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
悲伤的,难过的
在这里我没有力气去想

城市的夜,在头上
沉默经过它的心上
尽管它千疮百孔
仍在夜里笑得冷艳漂亮

我已疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
沉重的,烫手的
在这里都可以暂时放放

等到了站,下了车
余下的路还有好长
不去想,管它呢
让风吹在我脸上

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累
